Product description

Review

"Kline provides a text that is accessible for graduate students, practitioners, and researchers who are not intimately familiar with SEM techniques. In addition, he effortlessly summarizes current information that researchers who already use SEM should have….A major strength of the book is the individual chapter examples with explanation of the values provided from a variety of statistical analysis packages." - James B. Schreiber, Center for Advancing the Study of Teaching and Learning, Duquesne University, USA

"The coverage is excellent and the writing style is friendly and direct, with a subtle humor that I find refreshing. I especially like the new topic boxes in the third edition, most of which discuss issues that I have had to address separately in lectures." - Jacob Marszalek, Division of Counseling and Educational Psychology, University of Missouri-Kansas City, USA 

"This is now the #1 book I will recommend to students and substantive researchers (who are not quantitative specialists) who want to learn SEM! Compared to most SEM books that I have seen, this one strikes a better balance between accessibility and breadth. In the third edition, Kline not only has updated the material, but has substantially improved it." - Noel A. Card, Division of Family Studies and Human Development, University of Arizona, USA

"In the third edition, Kline has improved the pedagogical value of his book relative to prior editions and to other SEM books. The Web page featuring complete computer syntax and data for the examples is very helpful. Other new material further supports a reader’s understanding of SEM." - Craig Wells, School of Education, University of Massachusetts-Amherst, USA

"Of all the introductory SEM texts, this one is the most interesting to read. Anyone who has taken a course in basic algebra or introductory statistics will be able to understand the ideas and work through the exercises, and those who work their way through the book will have a good foundation in SEM and will be able to use it effectively." - David F. Gillespie, George Warren Brown School of Social Work, Washington University in St. Louis, USA
